The world's longest submarine cable
Today, the Minister of Energy has given the green light to the 750 km Viking Link power cable between Denmark and the UK at a price of approximately 11 billion DKK. It will be the world's longest DC power cable and will ensure Denmark high security of supply and better electricity trading opportunities in the future.
"Strong electricity connections abroad are crucial for a small nation like Denmark. We will be able to sell our power in a larger market when we have a surplus of renewable energy. At the same time, we get a larger supply of power to Denmark when the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining. Strong electricity connections to our neighbors thus contribute to ensuring cheap and reliable power for consumers and to keep the value of wind up," says Energy, Supply and Climate Minister Lars Chr. Lilleholt.
